When this song came out I was around 8 years old.  My parents owned a small grocery store.  I remember the big black tarantula that came in with our bananas one day too.  My brother caught it and we had it on the counter in a jar.  Pretty fun times too!

The 'Banna Boat Song' is one of Harry Belefonte's best. It is CALYPSO at its best.

Most probably a mix of the Jamaican Patois and american English, he spent many of his childhood years with his grandma in Jamaica. Of course, Patois is very much influenced by african Languages also. Just saying..  :)

The one person that didn't like this probably slipped on a banana at one time or another in their life. Completely understandable. Great song all the same.

@kellyhaden66 Not broken, but tell me the last time you can tell when someone is being sarcastic on the internet unless you can HEAR them. It's a little difficult to pick up on sarcasm when it's being typed.
Kelly Haden
@FaroresCourage Your sarcasm meter is broken.
